So...
Can get :unconnected: OR :brown: OR :water: (only 1 of these)
AND it stacks with :green: ?

Also, 49 ticks would be no penalty?

Yeah. I tried to show it in the scoring with some dashes to show how they stack, but just to clarify:
:unconnected: Wheelless stacks with :green: green
:brown: Brown stacks with :unconnected: wheelless and :green: green
:water: Water stacks with :unconnected: wheelless and :green: green

EDIT: Forgot to answer the 2nd question. Yes, 49 would not incur any penalty. 99 ticks would be 1 penalty point. 149 would be 2 penalty points and so on and so forth :)

I had some complaints about Penthouse being too sucky so I've removed the level. In fact, I had already done it, but I erred on the side of caution and put it back in when I posted the comp. I should've just left it out.

Alright I'm game, hopefully I'll have the time to put a decent effort. It's been awhile since I've played a comp in FC1, been mostly on FC2.

Also my UNDO key isn't working, is anyone else having this issue? ;)

I know all of my scores can be improved and I even know how, but tweaking will truly be a nightmare :L

...or at least time consuming. I've got one I think is the best score, except I need one. more. tick.
Solved it several times, but just off by 1.

Leaderboard update and under 24 hours to go before the deadline. I have to say that the fight for gold, silver, and bronze couldn't be any tighter! Good luck to all!
